Hernia Surgery

Diaphragmatic Hernia Repair
These hernias can be congenital or traumatic. Surgery is performed to return abdominal structures from the chest to the abdomen and to close the defect in the diaphragmatic tissue.

Perineal Hernia Repair
In this hernia, abdominal contents enter the perineal space. Surgical repair involves returning the herniated structures to the abdomen and closing of the defect using a muscle flap harvested from the floor of the pelvis.

Inguinal Hernia Repair
In this condition, abdominal contents slip under the skin through an over-large inguinal ring. Surgery entails returning herniated tissue to the abdomen and partial closure of the inguinal ring.

Abdominal and Umbilical Hernia Repair
Abdominal hernias are most commonly traumatic; umbilical hernias are most commonly congenital. Both are repaired by returning herniated tissue to the abdomen and closing the defect.
